Box Office Top 3: 'Dawn Of Justice' Loses Momentum After Poor Reviews
"Zootopia" made the top three for the fifth week in a row, and although "Batman v Superman" was No. 1, ticket sales dropped significantly.By Jamal Andress | April 3, 2016
After breaking records in its debut, "Batman v Superman" has taken a serious hit in its second weekend. Looks like Rotten Tomatoes can make a difference after all.
Taking the No. 1 spot essentially by default, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" brought in an estimated $52 million. And while a $52 million weekend is impressive for most films, unfortunately, this is not most films.
Superhero movies tend to bet big with their budgets and deliver huge weekend numbers, which makes a 68 percent drop in ticket sales a fairly big deal.
